Cross, Diabetes Caucus Honors
Horace Mann Elementary
OAK PARK, IL…State Representative Tom Cross (R-Oswego) and the Illinois Legislative Diabetes Caucus are awarding the first Stand Up/Stand Out Award to Horace Mann Elementary School in Oak Park on March 19th. Horace Mann Elementary was selected because of their excellence in implementing the Students with Diabetes Care Act into their everyday education.
“The students with Diabetes Care Act was created to insure that children with diabetes are able to get the care they need in school,” said Cross. “Horace Mann Elementary has done a great job of implementing the new law in its very first year and they deserve our recognition.”
The University of Chicago created and chose the recipients of The Stand Up/Stand Out Award. Horace Mann Elementary was nominated by the parents of a kindergartener named Alexandra who is living with Diabetes. Alexandra’s parents were pleased that her teachers, administrators and the school nurse have created and implemented a plan that provides all the necessary care, but does not disrupt the educational experience for her or her classmates.
“Horace Mann Elementary is a model for exactly how The Care of Students with Diabetes Act (“The Act”) is supposed to work,” said Todd Kahn, a father that nominated the school. “The team at Mann gets it right by balancing the duties of Alex’s designated care aides with those of trained healthcare providers. They have provided great care, a safe, supportive environment, and most importantly, they have allowed Alexandra to be a kid.”
Horace Mann Elementary has assigned two teachers as designated care aides to help Alexandra in the classroom with her daily blood sugar checks and medication. Two school nurses are also kept informed and available to help if a problem occurs.
“This school is going above and beyond to make sure Alexandra gets her daily routine care without having to miss class or her educational and social opportunities,” said Cross.
